For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor, a lifetime. Weeping may spend the night, but there is joy in the morning. (Psalm 30:5)
Sometimes it seems the opposite is true: His favor seems more fleeting, His anger more lasting, joy temporary and weeping chronic. But our feelings and perspective can deceive us. When we claim God’s perspective and truth, we can claim and trust what is lasting and what is fleeting.
No matter what, God is God. He is faithful and trustworthy. He is merciful and just. He is sovereign. He created, cares, corrects, and comforts. He encourages, equips, and engages. When we know Him better, we know ourselves better. Because, really, it is more about Him than us.
